In typical fashion I bought the wood for this project weeks ago and just got around to making it. Blogging is hard work, guys.
I originally saw these shelves at Urban Outfitters and fell in love with them, but there was no way I was paying 40 bucks for one shelf. I will admit, it was difficult sourcing the wooden circles for this project. The ones I found were either too thin, or too expensive. I had used one of these clock faces to make my Donut Clock and remembered that it was the perfect size and thickness. I figured since the middle of the circle would have the shelf piece, the hole in the middle didn’t really matter.
I love how these shelves turned out! They are a great way to display all those little trinkets.
I always find myself hoarding small trinkets that I have no idea where to store. I hung some shelves last year that are already overflowing with plants, frames, and small ceramic sculptures. I wanted to hang some smaller shelves that would also serve as an art piece. I love the look of unfinished wood and the simplicity and strength of rope cord. The result is a simple design that makes a big impact in your space!
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I recently said good-bye to my childhood bedroom color. After this post, I decided I wanted a bright, white room. I’m a pretty extreme person because painting has led me to want to redo my entire room. I’m currently on the hunt for a cute desk, and would love to hang a couple shelves right above it. The gold shelf brackets add a touch of glamour to an otherwise functional piece, and would be a super simple DIY!
